The container houses are exactly what it seems. Houses made of steel cargo containers that are transported carry goods everywhere in trains, trucks and ships. From these giant blocks of Lego, people build houses of all shapes and sizes.
The smallest container makes a small box of the house of about 100 square feet. Eight larger containers can form a two-story house at a height of approximately 1,400 square feet. Hundreds of small container apartments together can create a huge apartment building.
Why are shipping containers used to make houses, studios, compartments and offices? Well, with about 14 million containers “out of service” in the world, there are many. Playing with giant blocks has a specific gravity!
In addition to elegance, the interest in container houses is part of a broader interest in providing funds through homes and prefabricated units. Many potential owners are looking for low construction and maintenance costs. There is also the perception that container houses contribute to recycling.

Try renovating your basement. Often times, basements are just used for storage and are kept dark and damp. With the same kind of attention, you give your other rooms; You could completely transform it into a place you'd like to spend time in. You could make it a recreation room, an office, or even a bedroom.
If you are looking to fill up your walls with some artwork, you can place a few small pieces together in a group. You need to make sure that they are not too terribly close together and that the spacing is correct. A good rule of thumb is about 2 to 3 inches between frames depending on the space that you have.
